to vesicare.com for a free trial offer. and president obama and governor romney did engage in quite a few sharp exchanges, including libya and syria and iran and this exchange right off the top on al qaeda. >> we're going to have to recognize that we have to do as the president has done. i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden and going after the leadership in al qaeda but we can't kill our way out of this mess. >> governor romney, i'm glad thaw recognize that al qaeda is a threat. you said the biggest threat was russia, not al qaeda. you know, the cold war's been over for 20 years. >> attacking me is not an agenda. attacking me is not talking about how we're going to deal with the challenges that exist in the middle east and take advantage of the opportunity there and stem the tide of this violence. >> on three separate occasions tonight, president obama described mr. romney's approach to foreign policy as all over the map. he used that phrase repeatedly. the third time he made that reference president obama went on an extended rift about him. >> on a whole range of issues, whet
at the libya response from governor romney, other responses by president obama, they need short, concise, be powerful. this is, in fact, the last venue to do something like this just two weeks before the election. neil: finally, the pressure, i think, disproportionally on the president because it's his strength. if there's a rubber mat, he's the guy with the advantage because he's dominating these headlines and events, or did i jump the gun a little bit? >> well, when you look add what happened at the first debate, voters realized he was not the mitt romney the democrats were portraying creating this sense or movement or the swing in the polls that although president obama had a much better debate in the second debate than the first one, that didn't move polls back. there's a sense of romney momentum, and that's something the president has to stop, especially in the last couple weeks. neil: we'll watch closely. after all the handlers are there, sometimes getting there 15-20 # minutes before the debate is done. this is it, final exchange of the candidates of 2012. wrapping up then three p
, when we welcome president barack obama and governor romney. [ cheers and applause ] >> gentlemen your campaigns have agreed to certain rules, and they are simple. they have asked me to divide the evening into segments. i'll poesz a question at the beginning of each segment. you will each have two minutes to respond, and then we will have a general discussion until we move to the next segment. tonight's debate as both of you know comes on the 50th anniversary of the night that president kennedy told the world that the soviet union had installs nuclear missiles in cuba. and it is a sobering reminder that ever president faces at some point an unexpected threat to our national security from abroad. so let's begin. the first segment is the challenge of a changing middle east and the new face of terrorism. i'm going to put this into two segments. the first question and it concerns libya, the controversy over what happened here continues. four americans are dead including an american ambassador. questions remain what hand what caused it? was it is a policy failure? was
obama, governor romney, already backstage at this moment. there are about 300 people in the audience there in boca raton, millions more watching from home and, george, every debate has changed the race. >> no question about it. round one, a big win for governor romney. president obama, scored a more narrow victory last week and tonight our abc/"the washington post" poll, what happens tonight will set the stage. >> we want to take a look because in the audience already, mrs. romney, mrs. obama. both of whom said they get more nervous than the candidates at these debates. >> a lot of pressure also on tonight's moderator, bob schieffer of cbs news. the third time he's moderated a presidential debate. the focus on foreign affairs from lynn university in boca raton, florida. >> good evening from the campus of lynn university here in boca raton, florida. this is the fourth and last debate of the 2012 campaign brought to you by the commission on presidential debates. this one is on foreign policy. i'm bob schieffer of cbs news. the questions are mine, and i have not shared them with the can
the command center chief test, and has president obama already passed it, and hence this debate is really about whether romney can pass it or not, is it as simple as that, or is it more detailed? >> al gore: i think it is a factor, but i think it's more detailed in an era where the united states has been through two long wars. i think that governor romney, in addition to being required to pass that test, i agree with you on that, he also has some opportunities to try to take particular incidents like the bengahzi matter, and use it as a symbol to lay the basis for a broader indictment. i don't think it's justified and i don't think you'll be able to do it, but he certainly is going to try. now his lack of experience in these issues has already shown up. you know he declared that russia was our number one foreign policy opponent causing former secretary of state and chairman of the joint chief colin powell to say come on, mitt think. i thought that was very hurtful to governor romney. >> jennifer: i put bets on the table that colin powell endorses some time tonight or in the next few days.

on foreign policy. with the race still very tight, both president obama and mitt romney have a lot to gain and a lot to lose in their final joint appearance before a national audience. it might be their last best chance to win over the uncommitted voters who will decide the election, which is now just two weeks away. for tonight's debate, the candidates will be seated together at a table with bob schieffer, anchor of "face the nation." this is the third time bob has moderated the final presidential debate. >> schieffer: good evening from the campus of lynn university here in boca raton, florida. this is the fourth and last debate of the 2012 campaign brought to you by the commission on presidential debates. this one's on foreign policy. i'm bob schieffer of cbs news. the questions are mine and i have not shared them with the candidates or their aides. the audience has taken a vow of silence-- no applause, no reaction of any kind except right now when we welcome president barack obama and governor romney.

, florida, for the third and final debate between president barack obama and former governor mitt romney. when they leave the stage tonight after 90 minutes together, these two men are not expected to see one another again until after the election two weeks from now. it is safe to say neither campaign in either its wildest dreams nor worst fears expected to be in a dead heat with 15 days to go. but that's what our national poll shows. as of tonight, our nbc news national polling has it this way. 47% obama, 47% romney. tonight's topic is foreign affairs. our moderator, bob schieffer of cbs news. last time these two men debated, it was instantly labeled the most contentious event of its kind in the modern political era. a lot of it had to do with body lang age as they circled each other. tonight they'll be seated and thankfully separated by the moderator, all of this happening in a critical battleground state of florida. so without further delay, we'll go now to the moderator, bob schieffer, who will be leading us through tonight's debate. >> good evening from the campus of lynn university
obama and governor romney. i'm megyn kelly live in the spin room at lynn university in boca raton, florida. >> and i'm bret baier inside the debate hall. one thing is clear. this election cycle, debates matter. and both campaigns see this final debate as the last chance to move voters a significant way, especially in swing states. while foreign policy is the focus tonight, expect the u.s. economy to come up. the national debt as a national security issue. strength at home to project strength abroad and of course american exceptionism. democrats insist the president holds the advantage on this debate battlefield. but republicans are particularly anxious for governor romney to have another chance to address the administration's handling of libya and syria. megyn? >> megyn: i just want to say the debate hall seems more boisterous than it was last week thus eliminating need for golf voice but it was decent when we ran before the show before we started. let's bring in fox news senior political analyst brit hume and chris wallace join us from washington. brit, your thoughts. >> brit: we
. so the question is is this going to have an impact? and can president obama make it have an impact? >> actually, i feel bad for "monday night football." that's how bad the ratings are going to be. >>> because of the subject matter, it inherently favors the sitting president. >> i think it would have inherently favored president obama had it not been for the benghazi business. the benghazi business has changed foreign policy. i think that's a big problem. >> how do you think he's going to answer the benghazi question? >> i don't know. there are people writing timelines, there are people parsing through the intelligence. i also want to see how much romney turns a foreign policy debate into an economic policy debate. >> i think one of the issues may be romney distinguishing himself from president obama. actually, we a grgree on this policy. >> here's the final debate of the 2012 presidential campaign. here's bob schiefer of cbs news. >> good evening from the campus of lynn university here in boca raton, florida. this is the fourth and last debate of the 2012 campaign brought to you by
to do. president obama was handed a military that was debleeted with resources. surgical strikes and it's worked to this point about keeping us safe. >> the democrats have had a big fight about what the lessons were of the iraq war. the republicans have not had that. it's part of what makes tonight's debate a big deal. not just for the race, but for this nation. the debate is about to begin. here now from boca raton is bob schieffer. >> good evening from the campus of lynn university here in boek ra boca raton, florida. this is the last debate brought to you on the commission by presidential debates. this is on foreign policy. i'm bob schieffer of cbs news and the questions are mine and i have not shared them with their candidates or aids. the audience has taken a vow of silence. no reaction of any kind right now when we welcome president obama and governor mitt romney. [ applause ] >> gentlemen, your campaigns have agreed to certain rules and they are simple. they have asked me to divide the evening into segments. i will pose a question and you will each have two minutes to respond and
to dislike us. and i think obama's coming in with a hand but with a soft hand and when you look at the way our situation is in jobs and stuff, it's like for the last four years you -- you can't expect for us to come right out of -- of what we went through, through bush and expect for all these jobs to be there especially when jobs are being sent across seas for the man to make more money -- host: jerry, i'll stop you there. thanks for the calls. we're live all day tomorrow as the candidates hit the campaign trail. a reminder, the president in delray beach, florida. and tomorrow afternoon, governor romney joined by paul ryan. they'll be campaigning in henderson, nevada. you can continue the conversation on our facebook page and weigh in on who you think won the debate. later this morning washington journal at 4:00 a.m. eastern time. you can share the debate clips tonight and through the next couple of days on c-span's debate hub, all available on c-span.org. and now from earlier this evening, lynn university and the debate that focused the presidential election. c-span's coverage continuing
debate was a game changer. >> president obama was heading not only for victory but potentially a blowout. i think he's lost that opportunity for blowout now. he still could get a victory. >> that support must have been soft if it was able to change. >> part of it is a lacking of intensity on the republican side. the president brought democrats back in the second debate. this is the tiebreaker, if you will. then we get a two-week chess game. where do you spend your tv money, where do you pull back, it is crunch time. >> the reason all of this is because it is a divided nation. you saw the most recent poll which is ironically 47% for each candidate. >> wolf blitzer. >> will be interested to see if either of these two candidates has any factual errors. i'm going to be listening very, very closely. some of these foreign policy issues are very nuanced, very complex and one misstatement could cause some international ramifications. going to be listening very carefully. bob schieffer is already seated at the table. within a few second he will introduce both of these candidates. they will come i
